Actually, I'm curious as to what the logic behind "Master Passowrds" is? I'm working on a notebook, where the drive is encrypted and otherwise protected. Is it to accomdate public terminals or teams?

Which master password? For git? Or the server?

All of them. I already have a git password. Right now, for the attached database or for git I have to have a master password to store those passwords locally, on my disk. There is no option to store the various passwords (git, svn, database) on the drive without a master pasword. I don't need that extra layer.

My disk is already encrypted and I'm the only one to ever touches (or logs into) this computer. So what is this system for?

Right now, when I boot up PHPStorm I have to enter a master passowrd for the database, git and svn. Sometimes more then once a day - after my pc goes to sleep I have to enter them again. I want PHPstorm is save my passwords. I just don't want to have to enter (yet) another password to use those stored passwords.

I understand. Though I never had this problems. I checked in Preferences -> Appearance & Behavior -> System Settings -> Passwords the checkmark at "Save on disk with master password protection", and I was never asked again about it....

That solution does not work for me. When I go to settings -> Appearance & Behavior -> System Settings -> Passwords I only have the option to or store in keepass (asks master password on each first connection to VCS) or to not save (even worse).

Quite opinionated and inconvenient I must say, but I chose the keepass option, and hopefully it would leave it at that.

But it was on first option, 'in native keychain' but still yelled for pwd each time I did a git action or updated IJ.

Is the asking for Master Pwd bug now a feature ??
